The deadline to comply with New York’s I-STOP law is now just six months away. By March 27, 2016, hospitals and other healthcare delivery organizations need to have electronic prescribing in place for all medications—including controlled substances. But to enable electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS), you must meet the stringent requirements established by the DEA.
For example, providers who will be prescribing controlled substances need to be properly identity proofed, two-factor authentication is required at the time of prescription signing, and comprehensive reporting must be in place.
Listen to this on-demand webinar to hear directly from Lisa Rabideau, RN, Clinical Informatics Manager at Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital. Lisa will share her organization’s journey to EPCS, including:
- the selection of the team involved in the EPCS project
- the key policy and technology decisions
- the strategies and advice for implementing an EPCS process that not only satisfies I-STOP requirements, but also improves workflow efficiency, drives physician satisfaction, and increases patient safety
